Connecting digital camera to cumpietr

My old digital camera has an A/V cable which can connect via a video to a TV and show the camera's view on the TV screen before shooting. I don't have a TV or a video. I'm wondering if there's a way to hook the camera to a computer direct so I can use my monitor instead of the camera;s small LCD screen.

As luck would have it the camera model before mine had software which did this through the USB, as did the one after.

Is there an adaptor or black box could do this ?

yes. you can get a video capture device for your computer that would let you connect a camera to the computer and then you can capture the output from the camera on the computer or just view it if you want. just search for video capture cards or there are some external boxes as well. they usually require a rca type connectors (yellow, red and white) or an S-video connector. if you just have a usb connector to the camera you may be able to just find the software you spoke of and download it. what is the camera make and model?
